I'm a simple Scottish girl with an unusual name and a strange obsession for nail polish! My aim is to capture what the eye sees, with a camera! Too much nail polish and never enough time. Welcome to my little world :-)

a-England Excalibur (the original)



This is okay to use, okay to apply and quick drying (2-3 minutes a coat). The formula is good but this polish is prone to brushstrokes. Minimal painting for less brushstrokes! It's a really lovely silver polish and quite shiny. I really like this polish. Lasted well.

  1. It reminds me of Essie's No Place Like Chrome. I like using metallics for stamping and it's a two coater like Essie.

  8. A nice silver, although I'm not too fond of this type of finish. I hate visible brushstrokes! :P It wasn't that bad with this one though!

  13. I guess all metallics are prone to brush strokes... they are fairly minimal here though... you did a really good job applying it! :)

  19. This looks great on you. I like how light it is and I'm not so bothered by the brush strokes, it rarely does. I've heard that some people use a sponge and sponge on the last coat to avoid the strokes.
